Customer Question
I replace shaft seal...

I replace shaft seal on waterway svls56-110 spa pump. After reinstalling, it wont start. Swapped capacitor from good pump and still no start. Hmmm in timer box. Normal power at electrical connection. Pump is 4 yr old record pump that runs 8-10 hrs/day. Suspect thermal switch which has 3 wires. What should continuity check be between poles? How do I check fields wiring?

Contractor's Assistant: Who manufactured the spa?

Don't know. installed by a spa install specialist. Pumps likely independent of spa manufacturer.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If its within reason.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can't think what it would be.

Does the pump shaft turn freely without any electrical input?
